Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: what was the first concert you ever attended....

The last concert of the 70s version of Loggins and Messina. My family was driving all over Cali and we dipped across the border into Reno for the show which was at casino. Front table almost all the way stage left, right in front of the speakers. I remember my father complaining about the $15 hamburger he had to order for me (house policy, everyone had to order dinner).

We had been driving up the Central Valley for a few days and it was hotter then heck. My 8 year old car sickness made for many a pull off to the side of the road moments, which was not pleasing my father too much. All I know is that I had been promised AC at the hotel, House on Pooh Corner from the band, plus a ride down the Truckee River the next day if we could just make those last miles without any carsickness alerts. The amazing power of incentives.
